Complaint filed against Egypt's telcos alleging overcharging
- Egypt: Saturday, October 20 - 2012 at 06:02
The Egyptian Competition Authority (ECA) has received a complaint from the Consumer Protection Agency filed against the country's three major cell phone operators, Egypt Independent has reported. The watchdog is asking for investigations into whether Vodafone, Etisalat Egypt and MobiNil have a 'secret agreement' to increase the prices for prepaid mobile credit cards. The ECA said several complaints have been received from users alleging that since January 2012, the three telecoms firms have begun deducting EGP0.51 each month from customers' credit as "stamp tax," although such tax was not stipulated in the contracts. According to the ministry of communications and information technology, there are 90 million subscribers to the three networks.
